En kongelig affaere / A Royal Affair (2012) DVD9
In 1766, a naive, 15 year-old British princess, Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander), a sister of King George III, is betrothed to her cousin, the King of Denmark. When she arrives in Copenhagen, Caroline discovers to her dismay that His Majesty Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Folsgaard) is an infantile idiot, devoted only to his enormous dog. The tortuous tedium of her lonely palace life is only relieved when ambitious, intelligent Johann Friedrich Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) is recruited by the nobility to accompany her volatile, mentally unbalanced husband on a European tour. The attraction of shared ideals and philosophy soon turns into a clandestine, passionate affair. Committed to the ideals of the Enlightenment that are banned in Denmark, Struensee convinces the King to assert his previously unused power to remove the archly conservative, church dominated political council and implement drastic changes to Danish society. As the Court plot their return to power and the downfall of the Queen and Struensee, the consequences of their affair are made clear and the entire nation will be changed forever.
Based on a true story.
